Come Corona and the so-called ‘Great Expectations’ did a somersault! Where they were all set- to reach out for the stars, looking up above the stars so bright, like the diamond in the sky…..

And suddenly, it all went haywire, as if the E-software got corrupted by a virus…it could only expect the worse scenario, doomsday, fear, panic…and all the stars and dreams, no where in the pucture, engulfed in darkness. Hope n fear seemed to be playing see-saw in the mind, in these covid times.

What to do? What to expect?

Thanks to corona, i connected back to age-old wisdom or rather the eternal tug of war – expect vs accept!!

Forget the greatness (all projected glory)
in Expectation….
Kal kya ho, kisne jaana…

And just say Yes to the simplicity (grounded reality) in Acceptance.
Jo hai abhi, wohi hai sahi.
It is what it is….
and flow from there…
Peace. Truce.


Sanity quotient,
in times of insanity!
